RHONDELLA AND JENNIFER, O TYOU? RHONDELLA: THANKS, A.J. DELTA PLUS IS NOW SPREADING IN 11 CNTOURIES RAISING NEW CONCERNS ABOUT THE IMPACT OF T EFFICACY OF COVID VACCINES. JENNIFER: HERE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS IS DR. RK SIEDNER, THE EPIDEMIOLOSTGI WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES AT MASS GENERAL HOSPITAL. HOW IS THE DTAEL PLUS VARIANT DIFFERENT AND IS IT MORE DANGEROUS? >> > > SO WERE STILL LEARNING ABOUT THIS AYT OR DELTA PLUS VARIANT. ITS DEFINITELY ONE THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY IS WATCHING. BUT I THINK WHAT PEOPLEHO SULD KNOW IS THAT AS LONG AS VACCINATION RATES ARE LOW PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, HE T VIRUS WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD AND THESE VARIANTS WILL CONTINUE TO EMER. WE KNOW THAT THE PARENT VIRUS, THE DELTA VARIANT ITSELF, IS SPREADING IN MASSACHUSETTS. ITS BEING SEEN IN 10-20% OF CASES CURRENTLY. ITS CLEARLY MORE CONTAGIOUS AND APPEARS TO BE MORE SEVERE, PARTICULARLY IN YOUNG PEOPLE. SO FOR THOSE AMONG United States WHO HAVE YET TO BE VACCINATED, I THINK ESPECIALLY AMONG THE YOUNGER FOLKS, I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE KEEPING YOUR EYES ON. RHONDELLA: OK. We Understand PEOPLE WHO ARE IMMUNOCOMPROMISED MAY NOT GET THE SAME PROTECTION FROM COVID VACCINES. A W STUDY SUGGESTS A THIRD DOSE COULD BE THE ANSWER. WHAT DO YOU THINK AUTBO THAT? >> > > THERE HAVE BEEN STUDIES AND THEYVE BEEN REASSURI. NG IN THIS STY, ORGAN TRANSPLANT RECIPIENTS GOT A THIRD VACCINE THERE ARE GOING TO BE SOME SPECIFIC POPULATIONS WHO NEED MORE VACCINES THAN THE REST OF US. JENNIFER: IF THE PROTECTION IS BETTER WITH A THIRD DOSE, AT LEAST IN SOME CASES, WHY DOESNT EVERYONE GET ONE OR IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE TOO MUCH VACCINES? >> > > SO THE FLIP SIDE HERE, IN THE VAST MAJORITY OF United States, OVER 90% OF US, CLEARLY, THE CURRENT VACCINES ARE WORKING. WEVE SEEN THAT IN CLINICAL TRIALS AND REAL-WORLD DATA. THESE VACCINES ARE PREVENTING 90-100% OF DEATHS. BOOSTERS MAY BE NEEDED OR IMMUNITY WANES, OR NOW, THESE VACCINES ARE WORKING. VERY LITTLE ADVANTA TO GET A THIRD DOSE ESPECIALLY WITH GLOBAL SHORTES OF THE VACCINES. RHONDELLA: THIS TRSHUDAY REGISTRATION OPENS FOR THE VAXMILLIONS GETAWA Y. >> > > WERE LEARNING THERES A WEID RANGOFE REASONS PEOPLE DONT GET VACCINATED. HOPEFULLY INFORMATION SESSIONS LIKE THESE WILL HELP ADDRESS THEIR CONCERNS. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHOVE HAD A DIFFICULT TIME ACCESSING VACCINES FOR WORK SCHEDULES OR CHILD CARE SCHEDUS.LE ITS GREAT TO SEE THAT VAX BUS OR THE OTHER PROGRAMS IN MASSACHUSETTS TO ADDRESS PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD THESE CHALLENGES. THERE ARE JUST SOME WHO NEED AN EXTRA NUDGE. IN MASSACHUSETTS AND OTHER STATES THERERE A MILLION MORE NUDGES FOR THOSE WHO NEED THAT. HOPEFUYLL THIS WILL GET MORE PEOPLE TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE. JENNIFER: THE NUMBERS TICK UP. DR. MARK SIED
